Motorists want May's general election victors to deliver continued fuel duty freezes and an end to the pothole problem.
That's the conclusion of a new RAC Foundation survey which calls on the incoming government to honour both wishes as a matter of priority.
Potholes have remained a huge problem throughout this Government's lifetime - while the Foundation's poll of 2,040 people found that rail prices, traffic jams and overcrowded trains are the other key transport priorities.
The condition of the roads was, worryingly, a note of similar importance five years ago in a corresponding survey undertaken before the last general election.
Stephen Glaister, director of the RAC Foundation, said: "Five years on and the poor state of the roads remains the number one concern among voters.
"It would be a mistake if politicians thought the cost of filling up has gone away as an issue. In the last few weeks oil prices have rebounded and this has a significant and immediate impact on motorists' pockets."
Professor Glaister added: "On some big issues the politicians seem to be out of touch with the public."
The group also asked 101 politicians - 50 MPs and 51 candidates fighting for winnable seats - about their own prime concerns on transport. They appeared far more worried about train issues than car costs.
